Introduction Handy to the Dendy cinema at 24 Church Street Brighton
Ambience Only the name is Italian. Butcher paper coverd table cloths, in a typical shopfront establishment of no particular distinction

Service Friendly young staff. "Very good choice Sir' is one of my favourite comments

Food: The soup of the day, tomato and bean, was so thick it might have been eaten with a knife and fork but was quite tasty It's hard to make a really impressive spaghetti marinara but there was nothing to complain about the very good size serve that they produced. Much better was the shank pie. Served piping hot under a light pastry crust a nice lamb shank sat in a very good vegetable stew with a good pertion of baked potatoes with red peppers on the side.

Wine A moderately large list of not particularly distinguished wins from about $33 a bottle with a fair range under $40 a reasonable selection available by the glass

Price Vert reasonable Mains about $18 - $25

Comments A good place to go to before, or after the movies. Probably best to book. Everything is quite good Nothing is outstanding

Score: 13.25/20
